“Shazam” looks so crazy, it just might work.
While the DC Extended Universe may be coming to an end, it seems as if filmmakers are beginning to hit a stride where the beloved brand is concerned. WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara explained the method behind the “You’re seeing much more focus on individual experiences around individual characters.
That’s not to say we won’t at some point come back to that notion of a more connected universe. But it feels like that’s the right strategy for us right now.” On that note, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and James Wan’s Aquaman were both favorably received, both commercially and critically. Now, the upcoming Shazam hopes to follow suit when it drops on April 5th.
